The Desperate Adventures of Zeno & Alya
by Jane Kelley
I fell in love with Zeno, the African grey parrot featured on the cover of this wonder filled book.
Speaking his 127 words as he awaits his next Banana Nut Muffin, this resilient Brooklyn bird will soon face a most troubling time when his trainer, Dr. Agard, turns up dead! D-E-A-D! (yes, another dead body book)
Meanwhile on the other side of Brooklyn, Alya, a young girl with cancer, faces her own desperate fight for survival. (Look close and you will see her up there in that window)
Will these two find each other?
Will Alya fight for a future free of cancer?
How will Zeno survive in the big wide world?
Will he ever enjoy another banana nut muffin?
Will lives be saved? Will friendships be formed?
